Zoe Malone

Zoe received her BA in International Development from the University of East London in 2011. She then went on to complete a MA in Peace and Development at the University of Limerick in 2012. Her MA thesis focused on food insecurity in Haiti and its link to trade liberalisation policies. The findings suggested that the introduction of such policies had a detrimental effect on the state’s agricultural sector in terms of competitiveness. In 2014, Zoe began a PhD at the University of Limerick that will examine the viability of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America as a counter hegemonic regional movement.

Zoe’s research interests include regionalism, trade liberalisation, neoliberalism, globalisation, international political economy and food insecurity. In semester one of the 2014/2015 year, she gave tutorials in the undergraduate module on Regionalism in World Politics and in semester two she is teaching tutorials in the Global Political Economy module.
